Favicon.ico of Malucopédia is appearing wrong

I awakened from a seven-months coma and perceived that the icon of Irratiopedia is appearing instead of the icon of Malucopédia at the pages of Malucopédia (in any browser), and it's not the first time this happens. PLEASE, ask Carlb to fix Malucopédia icon to true Malucopédia icon --Helder Oliveira (talk) 20:32, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

I uploaded the new favicon. It should be visible in a few days (it takes some time to refresh) | CartoonistHenning (talk) 00:17, 7 September 2011 (UTC)


Has stoped. Over two weeks more than 4 new articles were created, but neither number of articles or number of edits has changed. --This user is administrator of Ukrainian Uncyclopedia. Vox 14:46, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Hi Vox, have you tried "Refresh special pages" before? See uk:Special:RefreshSpecial. It could be that this function doesn't exist on your wiki, I don't know exactly. If not, contact Carlb | CartoonistHenning (talk) 17:28, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Wiki.png on nl

nl:Bestand:Wiki.png is inaccessible. Dunno why, on other wikis everything seems fine | CartoonistHenning (talk) 18:40, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

Why "" redirects to ""? maybe you wanna correct that in interwiki table, anyways that wiki is amazing, I'm jealous when I see that wiki has ally users. Mjbmr (talk) 19:18, 17 September 2011 (UTC)
There are two registered domains for Oncyclopedia. The .net is the most stable domain, after we saw .org had some problems. So our host Carlb redirected .org to .net. There's no need to change all interwikis, the redirect works perfectly. Only... I don't understand why I can't access Wiki.png anymore :p CartoonistHenning (talk) 20:02, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

Interwiki Problem

Hello, I am about to running an interwiki bot, but seems there a globally problem with some interwikis, look at this edit and this edit interwikis for "ms" and "nn" aren't exist in interwiki table and interwiki for "af" is$1 which I think should be$1 and some domains doesn't event exist for example in this page domain for "fi" is which should be , please fix these all, Thank you. Mjbmr (talk) 20:33, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

It's not a problem. It's just a matter of each of these Uncyclopedia upgrade or fix their respective Special:Interwiki ABDUL ALHAZRED Salah, Zakāh, Ramadan, Hajj 20:38, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
So, it should be fixed by admins in every wiki? Mjbmr (talk) 20:41, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Yes. One by one. ABDUL ALHAZRED Salah, Zakāh, Ramadan, Hajj 20:42, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Has any body admin right on every wiki? I can't find an active admin on every and tell him/her please fix interwiki table, it takes a long time! Mjbmr (talk) 20:45, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Hey Renard, when Mjbmr show this edit: [1] the problem in this example can be solved only in the Interwiki table of Nonsensopedia. ABDUL ALHAZRED Salah, Zakāh, Ramadan, Hajj 20:47, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
??? Alz, all uncys have their tables intelinks, he'd better pick up a wiki up to date. You gave me the worst example, choosing a Wikia wiki belonging. Even the Wiki are interlinks the most current of these sites. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 20:49, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
@Mjbmr The Wikia Uncyclos is more difficult to do this because there we haven't sysops.
@Renard Sim, cada uncyclo tem sua tabela de interwikis. A mais atualizada é a do UnMeta (que me certifico de pelo menos a tabela da Desciclopédia estar sempre igual). O ideal é mandar pedidos de atualizações para cada sysop de cada wiki, como a polonesa onde vemos que eles não tem interwiki com ":ms" por exemplo. Dei o pior exemplo de propósito, não é porque é da Wikia que podemos deixá-los sem atualizar as tabelas interwiki deles. ABDUL ALHAZRED Salah, Zakāh, Ramadan, Hajj 20:58, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Seems Special:Interwiki doesn't exist in de.uncyclopedia nonsensopedia publicly and per Special:ListGroupRights in those wikis just wikia helpers can do this not admins. Mjbmr (talk) 21:03, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Espero que tenha lido sua discussão. Não quero perder tempo em dizer que os administradores de cada wiki jamais farão as atualizações e mesmo que eles tenham que enviar pedidos à Wikia a staff dela está nem aí com as comunidades.

We seem to be lacking a interwiki for Desgalipedia (the Galego Uncyc with 86 articles). They have a functioning interwiki for us, but we aren't returning the favour. In fact, there are several foreign wikis we aren't linking to, but that's probably just going to have to be dealt with at another time.

The Wikia ones don't have the liberty to edit their Special:Interwiki ABDUL ALHAZRED Salah, Zakāh, Ramadan, Hajj 21:21, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

It's almost needless to say a bit to update Special:Interwiki for what I have to check. In case of a new uncy arise in all other small or medium uncys an update on the tables interlinks. I have no knowledge if it happens also in large wikis. But I think this work is done by a bot.

I Also found interwiki link for simple English is not correct in wikis hosted in wikia and here for example see this even url is not correct which should be$1 not . Mjbmr (talk) 21:22, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
Eh, I contacted Wikia about the simple: one telling them exactly what to do; they even agreed it would be a quickie when they replied. This was a week ago. They still haven't done anything about it. ~ Pointy.png 22:43, 25 September 2011
Athyria, you also have to warn them about our interlink af: Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 00:03, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
I threw a yell at sannse on IRC and she ignored me... I guess I could put in another support request and see how long it takes them to ignore that as well, though. The things I do for you people... ~ Pointy.png 01:51, 26 September 2011
Why haven't I seen this yet? I have mailed Sansse many times before, but she doesn't seem to show much interest in non-profit wikis like us. You might be interest to read this. I also requested this on the Interwiki request on the Central Wikia, but the Staffers answered this was a "Sannse only job". They will be interested if we join Wikia, otherwise not. I know, it's a sickening matter | 07:30, 26 September 2011 (UTC) (Cartoonist)
Eh, sannse-only? Hardly; the other blokes deal plenty with Uncyclopedia, and a lot of times prove more helpful because they're not just repeating the same thing over and over... not that it tends to achieve much with them, either. Frankly, they don't seem to want to do anything for anyone that doesn't fit into their schemas, whether they're hosting them or not. That said, to fix the object id thing, just change MediaWiki:Signature-anon to say [[Special:Contributions/$1|$2]]. The function it's using appears to be broken. ~ Pointy.png 13:35, 26 September 2011

I'm not currently adding new interlanguage links to Uncyclopedia for non-Wikia wikis, especially to wikis without activity or community. I'll be happy to discuss this in person if necessary.

— sannse

There's your response from her. Although she acts like there's only one Uncyclopedia on Wikia... ~ Pointy.png 19:25, 26 September 2011

That's the word. She acts. She acts for Wikia, she acts for her advertisers, she acts for her naive users who don't know any better. She splits communities, she doesn't create ones. She doesn't care, unless it's for her business. I didn't expect a different answer, but it won't ruin my day. It's a shame | CartoonistHenning (talk) 21:28, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
You can not take your smile, Cartoonist, but it takes me. There was nothing that took the Desgalipedia that place and think that there were 34 articles at the time. Today I have more than 13 times the number of articles, the site is no longer a mere small Uncyclopedia and and except Wikipedia itself could make it visible to Galician speakers in the Cabozo. However, this is the policy of Wikia as you said earlier. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 04:00, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Statistics (again)

It stopped, already long time ago. I wonder why it is doing that... --This user is administrator of Ukrainian Uncyclopedia. Vox 02:22, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Hey, does anyone care about that statistic isn't working almost month?! Is this coordination uncyclomedia wiki or what? --This user is administrator of Ukrainian Uncyclopedia. Vox 21:22, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
I cannot do anything with it, because I just can't fix it, if its a softwareproblem. If this page you mentioned is a special page, did you already try to refresh special pages? Roye7777777 ~ Talk 12:02, 19 October 2011 (UTC)
I did try it, but no effect. That is the software server problem indeed. --This user is administrator of Ukrainian Uncyclopedia. Vox 21:28, 19 October 2011 (UTC)
Then I recommend you sending a mail to Carlb, his email is carlb at, if you are sure it is a software-error. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 21:36, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

I did that too already, but he just ignored it. --This user is administrator of Ukrainian Uncyclopedia. Vox 21:06, 20 October 2011 (UTC)


This reguest would be adressed to Carlb. I wrote this before but I didn't get any response or result. I'm asking again to try fix:

  • AbuseFilter — when I turn it on, it doesn’t allow to save whatever page anymore. I get blanked page instead;
  • DeleteBatch — doesn’t work too. When I click to «Delete» on Special:DeleteBatch, it redirects me to editing of page named «Object» (!)

I wouldn't ask if it was not important; since I don't have any acces to server I can't fix it by myself... it is Uncyclomedia system admin's responsibility... --This user is administrator of Ukrainian Uncyclopedia. Vox 02:31, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Not that it necessarily changes anything, but by 'blanked page', do you mean like the empty page you get when trying to look at a user's deleted contributions? Yeah, neither of us can follow that link here, but just for an example. That's the page I mean. ~ Pointy.png 15:52, 29 September 2011
Yes, any page would look like that once I turned the filter on. --This user is administrator of Ukrainian Uncyclopedia. Vox 21:05, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I'm reporting a cache problem in wikis which host here such as Persian one, caching is annoying and it's not like caching in ****pedia projects, for example anonymous users always sees old revision of pages and need purge every time, I feel bad about this, also caching for this wiki on is more annoying than , Is there anyway to fix this? Mjbmr (talk) 19:53, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, it seems to be pretty bad on all of them, though I never noticed any difference between which domains are used. Sorry I couldn't say something more helpful, but to my knowledge all we can do it hope someone with the power to do something see this. ~ Pointy.png 19:59, 4 December 2011
That someone would have to be Carl I'm afraid.. It is the problem of multiple Wiki's supported on one man's money... Maybe we should get a huge banner begging for donations or else just all sell our souls 2 Angela from Wikia (Who is a very nice and very small person in real life btw). Wkr, Alzheimlich (talk) 20:11, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
I think It's not browser caching and doesn't suffering server bandwidth, It's database caching, something like this, but sorry I've not a lot of knowledge about this. Mjbmr (talk) 20:37, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
Aye, my own minimal understanding agrees - the server doesn't bother rerendering the pages for anonymous users very often. Saves it CPU time, but also makes the pages old for readers. ~ Pointy.png 20:42, 4 December 2011
True, it's to save memory I guess... Wkr, Alzheimlich (talk) 20:43, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
It´s to save time, not memory, and is done using Squid (or Varnish) to ensure that the conversion of wiki markup to HTML doesn't get run every time a page is viewed. That conversion is time-consuming and can slow the site substantially, so is not done for anon-IP's unless there is no already-rendered copy of the page in the cache. It's possible that the same wiki existing as multiple domains (for instance, desciclopé vs. may mean more outdated pages are stored, as each domain has its own set of stored pages in the cache. Manually forcing a refresh gives the current page, as does logging in, but otherwise the intent is to avoid regenerating the page every time as that makes the server (and the sites) very slow. --Carlb (talk) 05:34, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
Erh yes, but the slowness that it would create is due to memory usage when converting right? :P Wkr, Alzheimlich (talk) 17:21, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Great! now we have more problems, I think this happens because mediawiki software doesn't have permission to session directory on server. Mjbmr (talk) 15:03, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
The logins are stored using memcached, not the file system, so there are no permissions to be set. --Carlb (talk) 16:04, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
